Actress Charlize Theron called her mother almost immediately to share the news of her Golden Globe nomination - only to be reminded of how much of a pain she was to give birth to.

South African Theron received a nod in the best actress category for her efforts in MONSTER, and when she got the news early Thursday (18DEC03), she decided to share it first with her proud parent.

She says, "I didn't wanna call my mom too early because she tends to think that somebody's died when you call her up too early. So I waited for like an hour or so.

"My mom didn't take long to remind me that it took her 36 hours to deliver me. As far as she's concerned, 'You win as many awards as you awards, but it still took me 36 hours - don't forget!'
